    Company: All Day Vapes

    (As you might guess, found at
    https://alldayvapes.co.za/ )

    So I have had to change the layout of my OP a little, I assume no one minds because there really wasn't much to it.

    Initially I had laid this post out to give you a full blown review of each of the seven flavours I bought from E-Cig.co.za. However, I have run into a bit of difficulty in doing so. The seven flavours I got are:

    · Cherry Parfait

    · Orange Parfait

    · Tropical Parfait

    · Lychee Parfait

    · Forest Berry Yogurt Panna Cotta

    · Cocolime Yogurt Panna Cotta

    · Crème Brule


    All juices are 3mg and a 70/30 VG/PG ratio.

    While I will still give a brief rundown of the individual flavours, there needs to be an over-arching review for the Parfait and Panna Cotta flavours. This is because I was expecting the “lychee” or the “tropical” part of the juice to be the dominant flavours, but my experiences have been otherwise. The base (e.g. Parfait or Yogurt Panna Cotta) are dominant, with the other flavours complementing them respectively.

    Equipment Used

    I used three different setups across the juices, some went in all three, others in only one of them, I will label accordingly, but my three setups were:

    The Gobco:

    · Goblin Mini V1 [Dual Kanthal 26g; 1.5mm ID; 9.5 Wraps Each (0.46ohms); Rayon Wick]

    · Pico Mod (+-30Watts)

    The Crius +KBox

    · OBS Crius [Dual 26/32 Claptons; 3mm ID; 4.5 Wraps Each (0.34ohms); Japanese Cotton]

    · Kangertech Kbox 200W (Took it from 35 to 70W)

    The Pirate Flag RDA + Cuboid

    · Pirate Flag RDA ]Dual 26g Kanthal; 3mm ID; 5.5 Wraps Each (around 0.4ohms); Rayon]

    · Cuboid (30 – 60W)

    The Parfaits

    As I mentioned earlier, I wasn’t expecting this to be the dominant flavor in the juice, but it definitely was. I’m a farm-boy so my idea of pudding still involves rice or bread; I have no idea what Parfait is! I’m guessing from the imagery used on the website that “parfait” is some sort of cream desert, and this one has just a subtle hint of it. My wife says it is a pastry-based dessert; she lies to me all the time so I don’t know for sure, but since she mentioned it I did pick up a very small hint of something like pastry or biscuits. But what comes across is definitely a smooth, creamy, rich desert, with the respective prefixed flavours coming through in a subtle undertone, the only exceptions being the Cherry and Orange Parfait.

    Cherry Parfait (used the Gobco)

    Initially the Throat Hit on this juice was very strong, but after a week of steeping it had dropped off significantly. Tastes a lot like those hard-boiled cherry sweets from the 90’s that used to come in tubes (I think they were called Wilson’s, cost like R1 a tube but let’s not get into that). The boiled cherry sweet flavor is definitely dominant, and just smoothed out nicely with a bit of a creamy thing going. I have long wanted a cherry vape and this vape is really good, definitely on my “to keep” list!

    Lychee Parfait (The KBox)

    I’m not a huge fan of litchis. I love them every now and then, but occasionally you get a bitter one, and then I don’t eat another for 5 years, it’s just not something I look for when I go shopping. But when I saw it I thought to myself a nice fresh Litchi vape in summer would be kick-ass. The litchi in this is very subtle; in fact, I found it so subtle I could hardly pick it up at all. Still a great vape, but I feel it needs a really big bump in the litchi department.

    Tropical Parfait (The KBox)

    This was also a little light in the “tropical” department. The same delicious parfait flavor dominates, with a very subtle hint of some tropical goodies. I couldn’t pick out any individual flavours, which may or may not suit you, I personally like my fruit vapes like I like my women, strong but sweet. This one is certainly sweet, but once again I would like to see more fruit in it.

    Orange Parfait (Cuboid)

    Like the Cherry Parfait, this juice was marked by the dominance of the orange over the parfait. It is a concentrate I have tasted somewhere before, and personally I don’t particularly enjoy it anymore (I think when I started vaping I had way too much of it). It is the sort of orange flavouring that tastes like a fresh orange, but almost like an orange with the skin still on or the pith, so there is a hint of bitterness to it.

    The Panna Cottas

    I don’t know what Panna Cotta is, but I do know what Terra Cotta is, and I couldn’t pick up any sort of clay notes whatsoever J , so that got us off to a good start! The household’s encyclopedia was out having tea with her friends at the time of writing this, so I had to Google it. I found out that it is “an Italian dessert of sweetened cream, thickened with gelatin and molded.”… YUM! This sweet cream was definitely in both of my vapes, I couldn’t identify the yogurt per se, but I’m assuming it is an extra ingredient that has been added by the juice maker after many tried and tested attempts to develop a good base. Unlike the Parfaits though, the other flavours in each were the stars of the show. First off was the…

    Forest Berry Yogurt Panna Cotta (The Gobco)

    Totally delicious! The berries were like a ripe and full flavor. Now I know what Panna Cotta is I think this is totally what I would imagine it to taste like! A pile of cool cream, with some ripe berries in rich syrup drizzled over… Damn I’m hungry, I hope she gets home soon… I started off using it as a breakfast vape, as I found that XXX is a bit too much for me in the winter mornings when my office sits at about 4 degrees. But this actually works really well as an after-dinner guy too! Even using it in the mornings, I often found the same vape in my hand come lunch time, so definitely a great vape!

    The Cocolime Yogurt Panna Cotta (Cuboid)

    I LOVE me some lime milkshakes! I often get mocked for going out to fancy restaurants, or drinks with the boys, and end up with one of these in front of me! In saying that, I actually bought this one as more of an experiment to see how well it works in a vape. Honestly I wasn’t hoping or expecting much from it, but it found its way into my basket just for the chance I guess. And I wasn’t disappointed, I did surprisingly get a good lime vape from it! It tasted quite a lot like one of the milkshakes I would get from a fancier joint (so not Wimpy), but I guess a lot of the flavours used in e-juice is traditionally found in foods, so I shouldn’t be surprised. However, while that flavor is there don’t get this thinking that it’s a milkshake vape. It has that flavor, but is accented by some other things that actually make it more like a fresh fruit lime. Nice and fresh too, I look forward to this one come braai time.

    The Crème Brule

    Don’t worry, even I know what this one is! I had it for the first time last year! @YeOldeOke 's version of this classic dessert is spot on! Again very subtle flavours, and in the case of something like a desert vape I prefer it that way. The thick and creamy caramel-like flavor almost seems to make its way into my clouds, where it feels like I’m exhaling giant crème brule clouds. Even my staff at work have commented on this one, and how good it smells to them, despite the fact that they are used to the tasty clouds that waft through the warehouse. There is a chocolate version that was released just after I pulled the trigger on this order, but I will be trying that one too next time.

    Conclusion

    I really think that there are some great juices here, especially considering the price point. I would definitely recommend getting the Cherry Parfait, Forest Berry Yogurt Panna Cotta, and the Crème Brule. And while you’re there pick up one of the other parfait flavours so that you can see if you like them. It seems to me if you will know straight off the bat if you like the flavor of the parfait, but would like to try an alternate version of it. Also, if you’re a fan of lime, then grab the Cocolime Yogurt Panna Cotta.

    The prices on these juices are clearly a good selling point, and I don’t think you will be disappointed. The pipette thingies on the bottles are a bit cumbersome to deal with, but they are looking into that. Thanks to @YeOldeOke for the crazy special, and the chance to taste a lot of really decent juices. Even the ones I didn’t like were by no means horrible, but rather, they are good representations of flavours that I just don’t enjoy.

    All the fruit loops / lemon cream vapes that flooded the market a while ago has kinda scared me away from lemon, but please let me know if it is half decent and I will give it a bash (at the price it is worth the risk).

    I also avoided the coffee one as I have yet to taste a decent coffee vape, even though I LOVE coffee and would be really keen on having a good coffee vape available. They always taste burnt to me. @YeOldeOke says that for his coffee vape (see http://www.ecigssa.co.za/e-cig-all-day-vapes-new-e-juice-flavours.t27464/#post-419955 ), he used capuccino flavour instead of coffee for this exact reason, so I might be tempted to grab one on my next purchase.

    Hola Champs!

    I remembered to detach my flash drive from my keys today, and have edited my OP to update the review. I apologise if there are some errors, I wrote in on Word at home, then opened it on Word at the office, and copy-pasted it on here. So it has been through a range of different spell-checks!

    As always, taste is subjective, and I'm simply putting down my thoughts on the juices :) If this was Criminal Minds I would be the stupid cop that the glorious BAU comes in and kindly holds my hand while I make a weak attempt to profile these flavours ;)

    Great review @Stosta, always enjoy reading you detailed descriptions of the tastes and makes me want to go out and try it and see if I can pick up the same notes and undertones.

    Keep up the awesome work brother:headbang:

    Coffee is for drinking or mainlining through IV.

    Cool reviews, I may pick up some of the cherry. Thanks for sharing your experiences.

    Ok I generally don't do reviews, but just a short breakdown on the juice I bought/ stole for e-cig.

    Creme Brulee: just a hint of caramel taste, very mellow juice, not overly sweet. a very slight TH - very nice (may buy again)
    Lychee Parfait: sligt taste of Lychee, not a fan of the parfait, can not really describe the taste might need more steeping.

    winner
    Mocha Yogurt Panna Cotta: the coffee is not overwelming (normally hate coffee vapes like Vapemob frap Chino :sick: ) but the yogurt panna cotta with the slight cuppachino coming through is fking great!) you barely taste the coffee, but its really an awesome tasting juice . Still have alot of the other 2 juices left but this one is finished, chainvaped it like a mofo.


    Great job @YeOldeOke

    Ok so I was a little on the side of developing a cold for the 2nd week of my ADV experience and it seemed that the TH dropped off, just puffed away at some other premium juice as i could not taste much.

    Yesterday I tried all 4 flavours in the dripper with fresh cotton on all 4 flavours and I am having mixed feelings.

    Set up the RX2 at 55watt
    Goldpillar3 with dual vertical coils
    24ga A1 10wraps each side, hitting at .54ohm

    The Creme Brulee and Creme Brulee Chocolate is not doing anything for me, (This is after 2 weeks of steep now) i do taste the slight caramel in the creme brulee and the chocolate hints in the other, but more TH than anything else.

    The Cherry Parfait cherry is there and in really nice flavour, but the TH is still overpowering everthing else.

    The Forrest Berry Pannacotta is awesome though. Cool undertone with berries in the front. Just bordering on the good side of TH, vapeable although the throat hit is there.

    I ordered 3mg NIC in a 80/20 base.

    So I decided I just had to revisit these juices and I set up my Nautilus X this past weekend.

    In MTL setup it is very nice!

    So I received my package today and couldn't wait a day or two to try it. I just tried the chilled pineapple.
    Setup used:
    Hotcig R150 with avocado 24, 24g single coil 7 wraps spaced coming in at
    .33ohm, 55watts at 280 degrees Celsius. The juice is 2mg nic with 70/30 base.
    I'm getting a very smooth vape with a nice menthol hit, not overpowering that it turns my hair grey on the inhale with a nice chilled pineapple note on the exhale and zero TH . It's a nice and balanced mixture. Personally I would like a bit more of the pineapple on the exhale. @YeOldOke, if it is all possible to increase the pineapple flavour I will state it in my next order. This will make a nice hot summers day vape.

    I would like to hear more from the other guys because the Pineapple really caught my eye. Summer is en route and I do not see myself being able to vape ANY of my favourites except Frozen on the hottest of days.

    The concerning thing to me is the TH because it seems a lot of people say oh no throat hit but when I at it I still het a hit.

    Will het back to my parfait and pana cotta's tomorrow and see how they turned out after a month steep.

    The creme brulee i sold to someone else who enjoys TH as I was not too optimistic regarding the flavour... even if the TH was to dissipate.

    Mine have been steeping since Monday, really want to try them out but will hold off for a few days. What is surprising is how thick they are, way thicker than any 70/30 commercial juices I've bought.

    Somehow 1mg nic makes a difference. I had many other juices at 3mg and would get that TH. For example, vapemob there papasmurf in 2mg, and their intense range is 3mg and I get more of the throat burn on the intense range as apposed to the max vg range.

    Cracked open my Chilled Pineapple n it is awesome. I'm not a menthol fan but this is just spot on, gives a nice cool inhale and a tangy pineapple on exhale.

    Tried out my Lemon Pafaite and Creme Brûlée, again only 5/6 steeping and the flavour said are excellent.
    Lemon is not overpowering, has a crisp biscuit undercurrent. 8 out of 10.
    Creme brûlée is quite subtle, has a deep rich earthy sweetness, could probably use a few more days to get the real depth of flavours to come forth.

    Richard Laymon, I am impressed, Oh Learned One! If @Stosta must follow this genre and somehow bring vaping "into the plot", could be an interesting but chilling read!

    Revisited my chilled pineapple yesterday and man oh man has the pineapple flavour come to the fore. Really enjoying it now, definate winner. Also cracked open the mocha panacotto and it's got this nice coffee aroma that's subtle and not overpowering, leaves a silky creamy after taste in the mouth. The coco lime is another winner and was good to vape after a few days of receiving it another win in my books. The creme Brule, still on the fence with this one. Not getting much flavour out of this one so I'll let it steep longer as I'm only on day 13 now. I do get a hint of burnt caramel when I smell it but the flavour very muted while vaping.

    Nice! I must try that pineapple and mocha! The creme brulee is very subtle, suited best for very cloudy devices IMO!

    Yeah the Creme brûlée is a little too subtle for me, I'm hoping more steeping will intensify it.
    The chilled pineapple is just brilliant though, almost killed my bottle already.
